Avalon Peninsula

Nova Scotia | Canada East/Central

Avalon Peninsula - an remarkable private island in Nova Scotia for sale

This wonderful peninsula amidst the Bras d’Or Lakes offers all that one can wish for - sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters and a well-established and well-mixed tree population of conifer and deciduous trees, some of which are over 200 years old, all adding to the good energy sensed here and fertile soil on the property. Persistent blueberry plants also thrive in various places around the peninsula.  

It is not unusual to encounter deer in the forest. Even moose have been spotted here. Eagle nests, squirrels, chipmunks and foxes are just some of the wildlife species, which call this place their home.  

The property is just a few minutes away from the access road to the world-famous Cabot Trail, which attracts around 200,000 tourists to the region every year! Also, North America’s first Single Malt Whisky Distillery – “Glenora Distillery” can be reached within an hour from here.  

With its gentle slopes, as well as areas of flat terrain, the peninsula offers beautiful and romantic building plots at the open Bras d’Or Lake along the over 4.5 km shoreline.  
Land is certainly plentiful in Nova Scotia, however parcels with water frontage without a busy main road nearby are becoming more and more difficult to find for such attractive prices.  

With a population of about 30,000, the town of Sydney, including schools, hospitals, a university, restaurants and many other attractions can be reached within 1 hour 20 minutes by car.   

 Large international cruise ships such as the Aida and the Queen Elizabeth II call at the port of Sydney during the summer. The ships guests then usually continue to visit the nature reserve (Cape Breton Highland National Park) at the world-famous coastal road, the Cabot Trail, as well as the historical Fortress of Louisburg.  

Shopping facilities are not only available in Sydney but also in Orangedale (10 minutes away) und in Whycocomagh (25 minutes away), where the children of the local inhabitants attend school. This is important, as many Canadians live here all year round. The sunny European-like town of Baddeck and Port Hawkesbury in the opposite direction with several large shopping malls are both about a 40 minute drive away.

This peninsula can be either subdivided (permit for 33 plots already exists) or you can just simply create your own private island retreat.
